How would you feel about a high diurnal climate, that isn't too dry and has 30C+ averages despite having a temperate classification?

It's an old station, but how would you rate it anyway?

Remember the clear winter days can have a higher diurnal range than the averages and the wet days have a smaller range so weather like 5/9C and -2/16C is common.



Climate statistics for Australian locations

January (warmest and driest month)
53.1 / 87.4 / 1.8"
July (coolest and wettest month)
35.8 / 54.7 / 4.2"
Year
43.8 / 70.9 / 35.6"

Solid "B".. don't like high diurnal ranges particularly but overall this place isn't bad considering.

C. Summer lows are pathetic, but highs are okay. Winters a bit too cold, especially if you like palm trees. Too much rain, but most is concentrated in winter where it belongs, leaving a fairly sunny warmer half of the year I assume?

You would still have canaries, washingtonias, windmills, Queen Palm, etc.

Sunshine wouldn't be less than 2600hrs. In this area, for solar power etc, they used the sunshine data from Wagga Wagga (2750hrs) so there can't be a huge difference.

That's about what I think
C- due to coolish winters and crappy lows year round.
Summer highs are good though.

No indication of sunshine, suspect it's not all that good.

C+, don't like the cool summer nights but the average 9am temperature is above 20C during summer so at least it warms up fast. The amount of rainfall is decent, however I prefer the precipitation pattern the other way around. This area has some of the best climates in Victoria, in my opinion.

Looking at maps and other stations it seems like 20-30.

More than 20 (though I found a source that says 19, but it doesn't fit with other places) and no more than an average of 45 which is what a similar station, that is a little cooler, gets.
